    More thread drift the junk ICAO codes are still in the aircraft add drop down despite me posting them numerous times
    Dear Paul, please don't raise these minor issues! My analytics software says there's been a 16% improvement in data quality so you are clearly wrong!

    96% is the number of correct routes. Route improvements have nothing to do with aircraft data improvements. But thanks we appreciate all data corrections!

    As I wrote in my previous post https://forum.flightradar24.com/thre...ll=1#post95179 the matching computer don't know if a flight is GA, cargo, passenger or charter flight. It knows the callsign, nothing more. For you when seeing text 'EMS' or 'Ambulance' it's very easy to know it's one rescue mission. For the computer doing the matching it's just a callsign like any other, nothing more.

    No one needs to be sacked, it works just as expected. First step is to import Hex and Reg (that is why we don't want Brazilian, German och Chinese aircraft on US hex codes) and the next step is to populate correct data. Over 100k hex codes have been imported this week and of these over 36k have been populated so far.

    Once again, route improvements have absolutely nothing to do with aircraft data.

    Crikey! Recognition and appreciation at last! Are you feeling alright Mike? Not bumped your head on something and feeling a bit off color, no?

    Example of a 'last known route' reused I mention which ends in what you guys see based on closest receiver/airport.

    It did do gry-chc earlier. But now it's a new leg but already populated in an assumed reverse direction.

    As the callsign = registration (like most small aircraft) the destination is moot unless left as ??? And then populated after the fact if filed route not available.

    Although it has been filed with at least one of the international route suppliers obviously. Headed to Chatham island off the East coast.
